Abstract

In one aspect of the invention apparatus and methods are provided for completing a wellbore using expandable sand screen. An apparatus (200) including a section of expandable sand screen (220), and an expanding member (240) is disposed in the wellbore (205) on a tubular run-in string (225). Thereafter, the expandable sand screen is expanded in a producing area of the wellbore.

Claims (14)

1. A method of completing a wellbore, the method comprising:
running an assembly into the wellbore in a single trip;
locating the assembly in the wellbore such that a perforating device of the assembly is adjacent a formation;
operating the perforating device to form perforations in the wellbore;

relocating the assembly in the wellbore such that an expandable screen of the assembly is concentrically located in at least a portion of the wellbore having the perforations therein; and expanding the expandable screen with an expander device of the assembly.
2 A method of claim 1, further comprising:
setting a packer disposed in the assembly above the perforating device prior to operating the perforating device; and releasing the packer prior to relocating the assembly.
3. A method of claim 1 or 2, wherein the expander device is a generally cone-shaped member.
4. A method of claim 1 or 2, wherein the expander device includes at least one radially extendable member.
5. A method of any one of claims 1 to 4, further comprising removing the expander device after expanding the expandable screen.
6. A method of any one of claims 1 to 5, wherein the expandable screen is fixed in the wellbore with a lower packer disposed in the assembly below the expandable screen.
7. A method of claim 6, further comprising setting the lower packer prior to expanding the expandable screen.
8. A method of any one of claims 1 to 7, further comprising setting an upper packer disposed in the assembly above the expandable screen.
9. A method of any one of claims 1 to 8, further comprising injecting a fluid into an annular area around the expandable screen.
10. A method of claim 9, wherein the fluid is a slurry containing sized gravel.
11. A method of completing a well, the method comprising:
running an assembly on a run-in string into the well in a single trip;
locating the assembly in the well, wherein an expandable screen of the assembly is concentrically located adjacent a formation;
circulating a fluid through a cross-over tool of the assembly to pass the fluid from the inside of the string to an annular area outside an expandable screen and back to a surface of the well; and expanding the expandable screen with an expander device of the assembly.
12. A method of claim 11, wherein the fluid is a chemical treatment.
13. A method of claim 11 or 12, wherein the fluid is a slurry containing sized gravel.
14. A method of any one of claims 11 to 13, wherein the cross-over tool is integrally formed with a packer disposed in the assembly above the expandable screen.
